SURPRISING UNIVERSALITY AT FIRST MEETINGS
On Doctrine, Faith and Morals
Starting in 2012, we observe the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council. Pope John XXIII announced an ecumenical (universal) Council for the Church in January 1959 -- for three years the world's Bishops prepared for the Council -- and Vatican II met in four sessions from 1962 to 1965. Re-live the history of the Council at this blog, week-by-week.
